Snowbird, Utah – Summer fun officially begins at Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort, Friday, June 13, with the 11 a.m. opening of a new 24-foot, four-station climbing wall and additional summer activities.

The Peruvian Chairlift and Tunnel and horseback and ATV tours in Mineral Basin are scheduled to begin Fourth of July weekend, conditions permitting. Summer hours of operation will be 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and early summer season operations will be limited due to heavy snowpack.
